Always CHERISH life experiences

Hi everybody,

Today is the turn of CHERISH project to be presented. It might be my last article on the IVY blog because my volunteering in EUCC-D’s NGO is ending, hence this cheesy article title.

CHERISH stands for “Creating opportunities for regional growth through promoting Cultural HERitage of fISHing communities in Europe”. This project is supported by Interreg Europe.

Partners and Advisory Parteners from nine countries -Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Finland, Latvia and Germany- are part of this project.

“The main objective of CHERISH is to improve regional development policies to protect and promote cultural heritage in fishing communities in order to boost attractiveness of these regions for businesses, citizens and tourists.” -Source

Back in November 2018, CHERISH Kick-off meeting took place in Middelburg, Netherlands.

On this occasion, two EUCC-D’s employees went there as advisory partners. In this project, one of their mission is to produce media content.

On this purpose, they have filmed interviews they had prepared of the project leader and 6 project partners.

Back in Rostock, they gave me a mission: editing the interviews.

If you have read my previous article, you already know that I had a first experience of video editing by making a stop motion movie. This time, I had to use a software named Lightworks. It was pretty much different as I had to deal with videos with people talking on it, and not just images as in my first experience. Once again during my volunteering, a great opportunity to learn something new!

In order to introduce and conclude the videos, I have used the software GIMP 2 to create a presentation page and a credit page. For the first one, I have also drawn a map of the area where the meeting was taking place. I already made the map for the next meeting places.

It was important to respect the colors of the project, so I got a brief with the RGB values that were allowed to be used.
